These video clips illustrate the dramatic results that are common in Ruth's BodyWorkShops.
Rejoice Greatly -- BodyWorkShop© at a Classical Singer convention -- as the singer improves her posture and alignment, a very different sound emerges, with more color AND more flexibility.
Before I Gaze At You Again -- BodyWorkShop@ at Northwestern University's Career Week -- this musical theater singer's voice changes dramatically as she releases tension in her neck and shoulders.
Caro Nome -- BodyWorkShop@ at Northwestern University's Career Week -- this clip is also known as the "Holy Crap" video, so named because an audience member exclaims those words as the singer's voice becomes deeper, more resonant, and more facile with increased core support and release of what Ruth calls "Front Corridor Tension."
For Conductors and Instrumentalists
Xylophone -- BodyWorkShop@ at VanderCook College of Music (Chicago) -- see the surprise on the percussionist's face as the sound of the xylophone itself becomes richer and stronger, as Ruth releases the misplaced tension in the performer's shoulders and arms.
